Smith wants out, prefers Chargers or Ravens

Recommended Posts

Couldn't find the Steve Reed source article they referenced, but Rotoworld relayed a report confirming that Smith does want out and would prefer to play for the Chargers or Ravens.

ESPN NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas reports Steve Smith was told in January that the Panthers would "work with him" on a trade if he wants out.

Smith was asked to mull over his future in Carolina and get back to the team's brass. It was made clear that the Panthers will not release Smith or "give him away." The Gaston Gazette's Steve Reed confirms that Smith "does want out," and that his preference is to play for the Chargers or Ravens. If Smith does end up playing with a top-tier QB, he's a good bet to re-join the ranks of the fantasy elite. Any time he's had even an adequate passer, Smith has been one of the most unstoppable receivers in the game.

They're quoting Steve Reed. Trade him to the Chargers along with a pick or picks for Vincent Jackson if true.

That sucks dick. We saw it coming. They ought to treat him like the Bengals did Ocho and shut the sh*t down and make him play for us.

I think Smitty would single-handedly dismantle our locker room if we forced him to stay.

Can't disagree with this. The value we'd get for Smith would be minimal. A 4th rounder would be generous for a 30(31?) year old receiver with a big contract.

I don't want him playing for us if he's going to be unhappy.

Its too bad, I think he will end up like Jerry Rice and other superstars like him, playing out his last days in some other city where no one will remember him when he is gone. I have a feeling when he leaves and realizes he will never have the love from the fans that he had in Carolina, he will be a little regretful, unless he wins a superbowl, then he will probably retire as that teams player :(

he's not going to force a trade by making us take a shitty deal, IMO. If we can find a suitor that he likes and that is giving us good value he would like to go.

He most def has the ability to do that.

I said it earlier and I'll say it again, a hot head, volatile player like Smith who likes Clausen probably about as much as he likes chlamydia is a dangerous combo for a first year coach. If Smith has a temper tantrum and Rivera loses the locker room, the chico era in Charlotte could be brief. There are a lot of young guys on our team, and if Chico loses their respect early, it's going to be an up hill battle for him in the long run.

Now is the time for Coach Rivera to slap his dick down in the locker room and let these young guys know that no one is above the team and you are either in, or you're in the way.

It's been real, #89.

I still say trade him to Oakland. At least we could get a first rounder from Al Davis.

:(

Hopefully he doesn't rip the organization like Peppers did... I'll miss him. Definitely gave us some of our best Panther memories.
